Advance Wars Campaign: Mission 9: Kanbei Arrives!
Technique Limit: 2
This is your first of three battles against Kanbei. In all of
them, the tactics to use should be fairly obvious, since Kanbei is such
a tactical dunce. Just listen to the characters conversation before
the battle and you'll know what to do. In this level, you have to rush
forward and crush Kanbei's incoming units by day six.
Considering Kanbei's massive strength, Max is the best choice
here. Even though Max's distance range is shorter, he can still make
up for it and crush Kanbei faster than any of the other COs. While you
can get a perfect score by eliminating Kanbei in five or six days, Max
is able to do it in four days. To do this, you will need to place your
units carefully and make Kanbei's units move into the correct position
for optimal smashing on day 2. Your distance units should have attacks
almost every day, and you should only lose your APC and an infantry.
Remember that weakened units will always try to combine together,
leaving you with only one unit to destroy, not two. The elimination
tactics can be complicated, so if it's over your head, just try for
five or six days.
This guide uses Max
Day one, attack the north rocket launcher with your
north mid tank from the west, and the remaining rocket launcher with

your remaining rocket launcher one east, your north mech one southeast,
load your remaining mech into the APC and move it northeast of the
artillery, dropping the mech north, move your south infantry east, and
your remaining infantry west of your artillery.
